I have a Ricoh printer hiding on a Dlink DIR-655 with a 192.168.10.101 address. This gateways to 192.168.1.1, which is a Westell DSL modem. I need to allow wireless accounts on the Westell modem to communicate with, and only with, the Ricoh printer. Is this possible?

under the printer properties check the port configuration for the port number usually port 9100.

make sure the DLink has a static IP on the WAN side of it like 192.168.1.xxx

then do a port forwarding in the DLink of port 9100 to IP 192.168.10.101

on the Westell network print to the DLink IP 192.168.1.xxx and you should be printing

I'm having a dumb day so let me tell you how I followed those directions, and you can correct me.

I checked the Dlink, and it was using dhcp to establish a wan address. I've changed that to Static.

I then established port forwarding for port 9100 (i checked) on the Ricoh ip address (10.101)

I then connected to the westell network and tried to create a standard tcp/ip port printer on 1.42 and after answering a few more questions, including putting in the correct driver, I am faced with a "document failed to print" error when I print the test page.

I did put in the authentication code.
